In '57 I was 10, the best hide and seek games began after the sun went down.

I'm a volunteer for our local park system. A number of us old guys clear the trails and do upkeep in the areas that were the scene of many great dirt bomb wars in my childhood.

Now there are few people under the age of 35 who ever enter the park.

Oh hell yes, occasionally followed by a water balloon to turn it into mud.

Dirt bomb wars! Yes.

It's all been one long slow decline ever since some of those epic confrontations of my youth.
